BLOCKS by SIZE 7.5" Quilt Blocks

Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!

Back and Forth

Sample Quilt Layouts


These two quilt layouts shown below, each use four of the Back and Forth blocks, rotating each of those four blocks by 90 degrees to make a larger block. These new groupings are then set either side by side or on point to create the desired quilt layout.

Directional quilt blocks offer all sorts of interesting design possibilities. If you look closely, you will notice that one of the quilts also uses sashing to separate the blocks. Additionally, changing up the border fabric selection can make quite a difference.
